Well, first of all, I am sorry you are being put in that position. I am assuming you have your own family???? I am a person that believes in tough love. I saw my grandfather rip my mother's family apart because of alcoholism. Eventually he died from cirrhosis of the liver. He wasn't willing to help himself. What I remember the most about my grandfather is the times he interrupted MY family's togetherness. Isn't that sad?? It's a tough situation. If he's not willing to help himself, there really is not much you can do. In the process, you are going to be wasting a lot of valuable time with your own immediate family- which in the long run will probably make them resentful. I can't suggest anything to you, because honestly, I don't know what I would do. Hopefully, someone can give you some great advice here. My thoughts are with you.
